CH.1 The student will investigate and understand that experiments in which variables are measured, analyzed, and evaluated produce observations and verifiable data. Key concepts include a) designated laboratory techniques; b) safe use of chemicals and equipment; c) proper response to emergency situations; d) manipulation of multiple variables, using repeated trials; e) accurate recording, organization, and analysis of data through repeated trials; f) mathematical and procedural error analysis; g) mathematical manipulations including SI units, scientific notation, linear equations, graphing, ratio and proportion, significant digits, and dimensional analysis; h) use of appropriate technology including computers, graphing calculators, and probeware, for gathering data, communicating results, and using simulations to model concepts; i) construction and defense of a scientific viewpoint; and j) the use of current applications to reinforce chemistry concepts.
